committee and joins us live from austin. congressman is there any chaps at all the way you see it that there will be a bipartisan bill or what is the state of a play, as you see it? >> there hasn't been any bipartisan play at all to be honest with you, whether it be the new senate bill or of course, 3200, the republicans basically have been out of the-- out of the loop. that's one of the sad things about this, there's no bipartisanship. >> are there parts of health care reform that the republicans could sign on to? >> yeah, if we started talking about things that would really reduce costs, you'll start off with, we've got to start to talk about tort reform, some major factors and the other issues that we've been talking about now for a couple of years, portability, being able to buy across state lines, so that you can shop your own health care, and you can find the policies that fits you, rather than what fits the politicians think you ought to have, so, that's-- all of that needs to be in the plan. it's not being talked about. >> and when you talked to the voters in your parti

: austin, texas, david onçç the republican line. caller: good morning. first of all, i think this is a very discriminatory tax because i don't think there is being anything taken into account into lifestyle changes, people being very sed depentary, sitting in t of computers, not getting out. and if you look at everything that is going on around as an earlier caller said, there is sugar in everything. so, i think we need to get people out exercising and quit the mandatory -- put the mandatory p.e. back in schools. guest: thank you very much for your comment. i think we certainly agree that all calories count. i know the new england journal of medicine had an article saying finance bid the n.i.h. that basically says çthat. if you want to manage your weight and achieve weight loss you have to look at all camp resist and getting -- calories an get enough exercise. it is simple to say but hard to do on a daily basis. talking with those on the hill, it is a discriminatory tax. and if you want to look at some broad based mechanism to attack calorie intake then i guess you haveç
